The North-East is a collective name for the easternmost part of India comprising of the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura. Assam and Sikkim are at times included in the formulation. Most of the region consists of manicured wilderness expanses, heavy green tea bushes, fresh air, ethnic and cultural dignity and sylvan grace for the travellers to get addicted to this North-East Holiday Package!
Assam is the most developed and accessible state lying to the south of the Eastern Himalaya with the Brahmaputra river making it rich with paddy fields. Tea plantations proliferate around towns like Jorhat, and Majuli is one of the largest riverine islands in the world and a centre of unique Vaishnava traditions while Kaziranga is home to the endangered one-horned rhino! It is the best hub for journeys into other North-Eastern states like Arunachal Pradesh or Meghalaya.
Guwahati, the biggest city in the North-East, is defined by the breathtaking river Brahmaputra, which flows mighty, wide and awesome throughout the year! The place has a picturesque setting though the suburbs melt into rice fields and spread into green hillocks. Dispur, the capital of Assam, is just a short distance away. The original name of Guwahati was Pragjyotishpur, an important cultural centre as attested by many ancient temples here. The main attraction is the sea-like Brahmaputra as people gaze at it, sit besides it, walk along it and take a ferry or a cruise on it. For sure, hire a motorized boat (bhotbhoti) from the river front for a private cruise and picnic by a secluded sandbank. The Umananda Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is scenically located upon the Peacock Island in the middle of the fast-flowing Brahmaputra. Country boats form the Shukleshwar Ghat and take devotees across the Brahmaputra to the Aswaklanta Temple, an important Vaishnavite shrine.
The Kamakhya Temple is located on the Neelachal Hill, the most revered site and one of the foremost shaktipeeths for shakti worship. With a beehive-like shikhara, the lower part of the temple features interesting sculptures. The Assam State Museum features walk-through displays of tribal villages, besides textiles and sculptures.
The Orang National Park is located on the northern bank of the Brahmaputra and is a beautiful collage of trees and tall grasses from which occasionally rhinos emerge to show off their `armour plated’ bodies but feed on the grass to satiate their enormous appetites……basically it is a swampy grassland with landlocked beels or wetlands and slightly higher woodlands stretching away from the river. Amongst the smooth forest tracks, every now and then, curious hog deer stare at the visitors before disappearing into the jungle. Elephant rides may be arranged offering intimate glimpses of untouched wilderness. You may also visit the Assam Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Panoramic views are to be had by trekking to the peaceful temple to Goddess Bhubaneshwari at the peak of Neelachal Parvat. In the Uzan Bazaar area, a visit may be made to the Ugratara Temple.
Dispur’s main tourist attraction is the Basisthashram, a quiet retreat with small temples and a pretty waterfall and the Shankardeva Kalashetra is a popular cultural centre. Hajo, on the north bank of the Brahmaputra, is important as the ancient stone Haigrib Madhab Temple to Vishnu is also an important site of pilgrimage for the Buddhists. There is a Kedarnath Temple, a pond called Tsomani Bhadra and the Pao Mecca Mosque, frequently visited by inhabitants and tourists!
Travellers could take a short visit to either the Nameri National Park with pristine patches of forest land or the Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a tourist-friendly and popular reserve and one of the last undisturbed habitats of the Great Indian one-horned rhinoceros! In the language of the Karbi tribe, the Kaziranga means `where the mountain goat has water’.
Majuli, unfolds itself in epic proportions as a small gulf with the largest riverine islands in the world, streams and hills, as the great Brahmaputra keeps changing course, eroding or reshaping the land! Haflong, which in Jaintia means `white ants’ hillock is big enough for visitors to view the rainbow or look at its reflection in the lake that lies in the middle of this tiny headquarters of Assam’s North Cachar Hills, as the state also acquired its sobriquet of `Land of Blue Hills’ from this wondrous range of low hills, cut across by seven beautiful rivers! Most of these places would require an overnight stay or a two-day stay would even be better and perhaps a lot more rejuvenating!
Jorhat, close to where the tea story began, offers pleasant, lazy, do-nothing stays in breathtaking heritage tea bungalows. There is Banyan Grove in Gatoonga Tea Estate, with old-style , fireplaces, and Burra Sahib’s Bungalow in Sangsua Tea Estate, and Thengal Manor a bungalow with a classical portico, beautiful floor tiles and some stunning interiors. In Dibrugarh, tourists would discover the much-acclaimed and oldest tea-growing families in Assam.
Further, you may visit Shillong in the state of Meghalaya, where nature seems to put in its best face. There are tall and lanky betelnut trees swaying in the breeze and vantage points look on to scenic rolling hills. With a momo stop at Umaim Lake and the slight intoxication form of the betelnuts, the excitement continues! Contemporary Shillong is a small town, inhabited by a church-going, guitar-and-piano-playing population, glorifying its restaurants and tourist infrastructure, Indian heritage manors, waterfalls, golfing, Shillong peaks and museums. A trip to to this hill town cannot be complete without visiting Cherrapunjee, famed for receiving the highest rainfall in the world, though presently, this aspect has been snatched by nearby Mawsynram. The standard day-tour circuit here would include the Mawsmai Caves, Mawkdok Viewpoint, Nohkalikai Viewpoint, Eco Park, Seven Sisters’ Viewpoint, Thankharang Park and Khoh Ramhah. A visit to Mawlynong, cited as the model village of Meghalaya, would surprise you on this North-East Holiday Package, as it is encompassed with well-tended garden paths, with cane basket bins placed along the way, houses with trimmed gardens and ivy creeping up on walls!
Agartala, as the capital of Tripura, has a bit of India tucked into Bangladeshi territory, with the Bengali population living in the plains and the Mizos living in the hills. The city is green and bamboo-rich; embracing magnificent tiled floors, carved wooden ceilings and lovely doors. The Kamalasagar pond is a pilgrimage and a tourist spot. En route to Aizawl, in Mizoram, the road winds through gentle, pine-laden slopes and then along a spectacular ridge that falls away into the Bangladeshi plains. A jewel of a destination, this tourist destination has unexceptional modern churches in every neighbourhood. Chanmari, in this area celebrates the spirit of the young who are seen toting guitars, ready to jam!
Occupying a saucer-shaped valley, Manipur’s capital Imphal is surrounded by hills on which the state flower, the siroi lily, grows. This is a hub for exploring the state, which has forested stretches, the largest fresh-water lake in the North-East and the rare brow antlered deer, the sangai. Meitei, the main community of Manipur, has an interesting Vaishnavite culture. It would be worth visiting Sri Govindaji Temple, Khwairamband, and Kangla Fort. Other places around the area to view are Bishnupur, Moirang, Loktak Lake, and Kaina.
Kohima, the busy capital of Nagaland, is hugged by hills and is a beautiful city. It has a fantastic red-roofed Catholic Cathedral and an everbusy Super Market, as well as the State Museum. The Dzuko Valley is full of lilies and rhododendrons in season and acclaims an enduring trek range. Tuophema is an eco-tourist village whereas Mokokchung is a pretty town with the villages of Ungma and Longkhum offering interesting excursions.
Tawang in the north-west corner of Arunachal, juts into Bhutan, shouldered by China (Tibet), and makes a splendid drive through the plains of Assam along the mountains of Arunachal. Bomdila with beautiful monasteries, Dirang with fortified monasteries, and Sela Pass, a high point of the road are other sites to explore. The Tawang Town is perched on a vast slope of the Himalayan mountainside and the massive Tawang Monastery, dominates the skyline like the medieval fortress. You could also visit
Itanagar, a small picturesque town and the capital of Arunachal Pradesh. The Ziro and Talley Valley is a place of hills and forests and breezes, home to the Apna Tani people who grow rice and rear small fish and you could visit the Tarin Fish Farm to understand the paddy and fish culture. The Namdapha National Park, is on the easternmost side, and is a wildlife enthusiast and botanist’s wish come true, as this is the only park that hosts the tiger, leopard, clouded leopard and snow leopard, having a huge area of uninhabited forest and enclosing habitats from riverbanks to the snow-covered peaks of Daphabum! The interiors of the forest are truly magical, where a good expanse of the sky appears only from the campsites, as all else is covered by a dark green canopy. A tiny township in the Tirap Valley, Khonsa, offers exhilarating treks through forests, and in season the forest is flushed with the exotic blooms of orchids, as visitors may spy on the Gibbon monkeys, track the elusive red panda and get close to the cute mithun, a kind of domesticated bison venerated in this region. The Khonsa Museum has a collection of traditional tribal artefacts, including delicate bamboo work and handlooms. The Tezu, is a small town with a small bazaar and Lohit District is another lush vegetation in the tropical evergreen amidst the foothills and pine forests in the upper reaches, to entice you for a visit on this North-East Holiday Package!
Fabrics such as muga silk, cotton, kantha work and handlooms are very famous purchases in the North-East region. There are shops lined up with bamboo and cane products, and colourful stalls are full with local village produce such as forest honey, souvenirs like handmade knives, bags, shawls, bamboo cutlery and other crafts, including fruit such as saying and saflang, sold wrapped in banana leaves. You may also pick up the Jainsayem, the traditional Khasi skirt or Khasi jackets, pullovers and shawls! Packets of dried wild apples and gooseberries are also available for the tourists to carry along with them.
There are restaurants serving simple food like noodles, vegetables, dal, rice, roti, tandoori food and snacks. You would also find fast food spots selling éclairs, cookies, muffins and pancakes. Excellent Chinese, Japanese and Korean food is served in some outlets. Piping hot momos and ubiquitous little shops selling a rice-and-pork preparation would be an interesting experience. Ofcourse, multi-cuisine fare consisting of Indian, Chinese, Tibetan and International food along with khasi specialities is also available!
The winter months can be very cold, pleasant summers, and the monsoon season can be very wet, though the place is recommended throughout the year, as there is plenty to feast the eyes indoors and outdoors, on this North-East Holiday Package!
